Miami-Dade County Animal Services partners with NBC 6 South Florida and Telemundo 51 for Clear the Shelter

MIAMI (August 10, 2015)

On Saturday, August 15, 2015, Miami-Dade Animal Services (Animal Services) is partnering with NBC 6 South Florida/WTVJ, Telemundo 51/WSCV, and other shelters across South Florida for “Clear the Shelters,” a nationwide pet adoption initiative to find every shelter pet a loving forever family.
